Humanities_TITLE

This program offers students a broad foundation of biblical and liberal arts studies including intercultural studies, history, language and philosophy.

What Makes This Program Different

In offering a broader range of study, this program intentionally makes interdisciplinary connections between biblical studies and the humanities. 

An emphasis on cultural formation encourages students to contextualize their own culture in face of increasing globalization and intercultural dialogue. Students will also benefit from developing valued research, critical analytical and effective communication skills, preparing them for advanced university, seminary and graduate level education.

Students are strongly encouraged to take a full semester of the program abroad by applying to one of the Best Semester programs offered through the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.

Here are key opportunities you can partner with Prairie

We have launched our Campaign for Greater Impact to provide students with the very best learning opportunities and campus facilities for the decades ahead. 

In Phase One of this Campaign, we plan to invest in much-needed campus renewal, including: upgraded Infrastructure, a new Student Residence, Cafeteria, Worship Auditorium, and expanded Aviation Training Centre. A modern campus requires an investment that is bold, and even expensive, but each Campaign Project is strategic, and designed to enhance Prairie’s campus and student life experience.

Expansion of Prairie Aviation Training Centre

This expansion of PATC’s facility is a key project of Prairie’s Campaign for Greater Impact. It will increase the College’s capacity to train a new generation of Christian aviators to serve God in missions, and also address the growing need for trained pilots in the commercial aviation sector.

Scholarships & Education Fund

Invest in the next generation of missional professionals. Each year Prairie College distributes over $500,000 in scholarships and bursaries to students. We are grateful for each gift that reduces the burden of students’ tuition and allows students to fulfill their God-given professions.

Prison Bible Encounter Program

Encourage inmates in five institutions across Alberta to discover or reconnect with Jesus Christ. This fund assists the students studying the Certificate in Bible program with scholarships, resources for classes, and instruction. 

General Ministries

Prairie College is educating students to pursue a Biblical foundation for life and career.  Your contribution to this fund assists in minimizing the College’s general operating expenses.
